Re: back pain and aikido
You'd better see a professional to get the true verdict. I have had a lot of pain over the years - now gone - and it was muscular, not bone etc. Basically, I had done too many of some exercises and not enough of the other to such an extent that It put strain on my back as some muscles were too weak to cope with the opposing stronger ones. Think - what muscles are you using / not using. What directions are you exercising in most, and make sure you counter it etc. Well, that was the source of my problem.
